Opening This Week

21—Presuming its remarkable, true-story foundation will suffice, this loose adaptation of Ben Mezrich's best-selling book Bringing Down the House: The Inside Story of Six M.I.T. Students Who Took Vegas for Millions eschews such pesky nuisances as character development and narrative cohesion. So enamored is director Robert Luketic of the allure of Sin City that the endless, neon-bathed montages come off like a promotional video for the Las Vegas tourism office. 21 never competently marries its underlying morality tale with a respect for the game, glossing over the machinations of the students' scheme while ultimately relying on a series of false, increasingly preposterous endings. Read our review. Rated PG-13. —NM

MARRIED LIFE—What Ira Sachs' film lacks in novelty is compensated by its belief in the complex inner lives and basic decency of its middle-aged, middle-class characters. A story of mid-life crisis that only starts with that of Harry, a happily married businessman who falls in love with Kay, a much younger woman, Sachs and screenwriter Oren Moverman eschew the film noir pitfalls of their 1940s setting for a sprightly, suspenseful tale of infidelity and conjugal commitment. The excellent cast includes Chris Cooper, Rachel McAdams, Patricia Clarkson and a delightful Pierce Brosnan. Read our review. Rated PG-13. —DF

RUN FATBOY RUN—Coming soon to a long airplane flight in your future, David Schwimmer's London-set comedy concerns Dennis (Simon Pegg), a pasty loser who slips further into zerodom after abandoning his beautiful bride (no less than Thandie Newton) at the altar. Years later, and confronted with a taunting, overachieving rival (Hank Azaria), Dennis decides to get everything back by running in a charity marathon. There's not a glimmer of insight or surprise in the proceedings—only banal craftsmanship and lovely images of London in autumn, and Newton in bloom. Rated PG-13. —DF

STOP-LOSS—Didactic and overwrought, this month's Iraq War Movie™ assails the military's practice of extending a serviceman's enlistment beyond the end of their normal term of service. Ryan Phillippe plays Brandon King, a decorated Army staff sergeant who, after two tours in Iraq, is stop-lossed. The film jumps the rails the moment Brandon escapes from the base stockade, steals a jeep and goes AWOL. The bulk of the remaining narrative comprises Brandon's road trip to seek help from a U.S. senator, visit a buddy rehabbing in a VA hospital and flirt with defection to Canada. Along with the involvement of Boys Don't Cry director Kimberly Peirce, lefties will find the film appealing as a means to lambaste Bush's war while also paying respects to the soldiers. Frankly, the film does not accomplish either goal. Stop-Loss's finale firmly ensconces the film as a big, melodramatic waste of time. Rated R. —NM

SUPERHERO MOVIE—Oh, look. Another spoof movie. This one has Leslie Nielson and, for addtional kitsch pleasure, Marion Ross and Robert Hays. Rated PG-13.

Current Releases

4 MONTHS, 3 WEEKS AND 2 DAYS—Is it an anti-abortion statement or just an artistic tour de force? The latest indication of a "Romanian" new wave, last year's grand prize winner at Cannes takes place shortly before the collapse of Communism and depicts the efforts of two female college friends to find an illegal abortion. While the suspenseful acount of the process and its gruesome outcome are inexorably chilling, the moment-to-moment brilliance displayed by director Cristian Mungiu and his exemplary cast adds up to one of the year's great films. —GC

27 DRESSES—A painfully predictable romance about Jane (Katharine Heigl), a perennial bridesmaid who finds her selfless wedding planning skills tested by her boyfriend-stealing witch of a sister (Malin Akerman, horribly miscast). Flavor-of-the-month James Marsden is introduced as a cynical reporter who constructs sentimental wedding celebrations for a New York daily (a pose contradicted by Marsden's eager toothy smile and bland likeability). As a fluff advocate, one asks for clever fluff! One star though, for best ever use of "Bennie and the Jets." Rated PG-13. —LB

10,000 BC—Full of fake folk wisdom and a false history lesson to boot, this prehistoric would-be epic comes up with a Bedrock bumbler. Directed by cheese-meister Roland Emmerich (Independence Day, The Day After Tomorrow), this multicultural yarn focuses on the love between a blue-eyed beauty and her muscle-bound, mammoth-killing man, who must rescue her from evil Egyptian warlords. And even with the foolproof signs of a B-film blockbuster written all over it, director Emmerich's proclivity for phony tear-jerking and multiple emotional climaxes takes this film toward terrible even before the first wooly mammoth steps into the scene. Rated PG-13. —KJ

THE BANK JOB—Though the title and concept couldn't be more generic, this gritty British crime drama proves uncommonly smart and satisfying. In 1971, a gang of thieves burrows into a Lloyd's bank vault and makes off with a half million pounds. That much is true; in probing the crime, director Roger Donaldson and his writers find sex scandals, police corruption, black revolutionaries and a Royal Family frantic over compromising photos. Unlike most heist films, this one is less interested in thrills or jaunty jokiness than in the hidden currents of history. Densely plotted and ably mounted, it features a mostly unknown cast led by Jason Statham and Saffron Burrows. Rated R. —GC

BE KIND REWIND—Turning pizza pies and Xeroxed faces into special effects can only come from the magical, whimsical mind of Michel Gondry. Even though he moves to a less refined cadence than The Science of Sleep or Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, he maintains his signature childlike charm. Mos Def, playing the usual good-hearted guy, and Jack Black, again as the goofy slacker, work in a VHS rental store in Passaic, N.J. With a prototypical scenario of a mom-and-pop store under seige, the film's do-it-yourself-YouTube ethos creates a hilariously inspirational movie. Rated PG-13. —BZ

CARAMEL—A buzzing beauty salon in Beirut, Lebanon is the hub of the lives of women, who groom, dye, wax, file, shampoo, trim, highlight, moisturize and primp themselves and their clientele. And then there's caramel, a delicious, sugary treat is also—who knew?—a depilatory. Essentially a valentine to Beirut, a secular Arab society still dressed in the tatters of French colonialism, Caramel is bathed in a sensual golden light.. Salons are all about transformations, some more successful than others, and rebirth is painful, like having your legs waxed. Rated PG. —LB

COLLEGE ROAD TRIP—Who knew that Welcome Home, Roscoe Jenkins would be the second-worst Martin Lawrence film of this year, much less the past month? Rated G. —NM

DOOMSDAY—A deadly virus stalks the world, leaving only a stout-hearted band of survivors to fight it off and save human civilization. Could this be the sequel to 10,000 B.C.? Rated R.

DRILLBIT TAYLOR—For a moment, set aside the rambling, inconsequential plot about a group of high school misfits who hire a homeless Army deserter and con man (Owen Wilson) as bodyguard to protect them against schoolyard bullies. Producer Judd Apatow, working an offbeat script co-written by Seth Rogen, regurgitates his now-formulaic male coterie of a nebbish, a McLovin-esque dork and a rotund, foul-mouthed pal who actually resembles a prepubescent Jonah Hill. OK, we get it—the teenage years were tough for Apatow and Co. Unfortunately, the result here is a superbad, hit-or-miss mess that is only somewhat salvaged by Wilson's trademark loopy adlibbing. Rarely has a movie's advertising tagline been more apt: "You get what you pay for." Rated PG-13. —NM

FOOL'S GOLD—Bubbly Kate Hudson and studly Matthew McConaughey reunite in this romantic misfire, as worthlessly self-indulgent as a mid-winter's trip to the tanning bad. Rated PG-13. —KJ

HORTON HEARS A WHO—The latest installment in the Seussical family of films is a visually loopy adaptation of the 1954 children's classic, complete with a kaleidoscopic background of CGI jungle creatures, fuzzy-headed Whos and supple animation. Although this Seuss film is far better than its flat-animated and live-action predecessors, it pays too much attention to hyped-up Hollywood conventions to possess any of the charm, wit or sincerity of the books, even with an A-list of comedians in the cast. Rated G. —KJ

IN BRUGES—Celebrated playwright Martin McDonagh, in his first attempt at a feature (he won an Oscar for his first film, a short, two years ago), aims squarely at the prime objective of commercial movies—to entertain—and hits the target. A pair of mismatched hitmen (yawn) are sent by their boss on a kind of forced vacation in the lovely, historic Belgian town of the title. As their holiday inevitably unravels, the elaborate plot verges on absurdity but McDonagh's pitch-perfect ear for smart British Isles dialogue keeps things lively, as do the performances, particularly by Farrell's soulful eyebrows. Rated R. —MM

JODHAA AKBAR—Amid a spectacle of 16th-century Mughal empire power and glory, director Ashutosh Gowariker (Lagaan) focuses on an apocryphal love story between the Muslim emperor Akbar and his Hindu princess, Jodhaa. Stunt coordinator Ravi Dewan orchestrated 5,000 extras, 250 stunt men and a screen full of elephants and camels into startling battle scenes: Real life is cheaper than CGI in India. Not rated. —LB

JUMPER—Even Hayden Christensen can't cripple this satisfying actioner about a young man (Christensen) who discovers the ability to instantly teleport anywhere he has ever seen, either in person or in a photograph. Director Doug Liman brings with him the same welcome embrace of backstory and character development seen in his previous efforts (The Bourne Identity, Go and Swingers). Rated PG-13. —NM

JUNO—As the self-styled "smartest person in the room," Juno must come to grips with the film's overarching theme that maturity is not merely a reluctant acceptance of responsibility, but instead the reclassification of cool. Rated PG-13. —NM

MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY—In London on the eve of World War II, a dowdy ne'er-do-well (Frances McDormand) talks her way into the position of social secretary to a flighty would-be stage star (Amy Adams) who's dividing her charms between three suitors. Bharat Nalluri's comedy is handsomely designed and employs two appealing actresses. Yet where it wants to have the snap and sparkle of a 30s madcap farce, it manages only the tired clichés and predictable mechanics of an undistinguished off-Broadway romp. For any viewer not hopelessly addicted to Brit-chick-flicks, it feels more like Miss Pettigrew Dies for an Eternity. Rated PG-13. —GC

NEVER BACK DOWN—Instead of stepping up 2 the streets, this teen film gives us teenagers fighting in the basement. These days, however, brawling is called Mixed Martial Arts, and Jean Roqua (Djimon Hounsou) is there to guide the upstarts. —Rated PG-13.

THE OTHER BOLEYN GIRL—Always just one track by The Cure away from fully emulating Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette, this tale of the decadent yet remarkably hunky Henry VIII (Eric Bana) and his dalliances with the comely Boleyn sisters, Anne (Natalie Portman) and Mary (Scarlett Johansson), is distilled into a tawdry, soft core costume melodrama devoid of narrative cohesion or moral center. Rated PG-13. —NM

RACE—Two ruthless half-brothers (Saif Ali Khan and Akshaye Khanna) clash in this sun-baked film noir set in tropical Durban, South Africa. Mix in two femmes fatale (Bipasha Basu and Katrina Kaif), plus a shady police detective (crowd-pleasing Anil Kapoor) and his ditsy assistant (Samara Reddy) and you have the formula for a flashy masala film with horse-race hanky panky, speeding cars, explosions, catchy disco numbers and comedy cameos. By the end, you'll be so stunned by the action scenes (staged by stunt director Allan Amin and Abbas-Mustan, the hyphenated team of popcorn-movie mavens), the pulsing music and the glam stars that even if you can't follow all the doublecrosses, you'll no longer care. Not art, but fun ... and you'll be singing "Touch Me Zara Zara" on the way to your car. Not rated. —LB

SEMI-PRO—Like Blades of Glory and Talladega Nights before it, Semi-Pro's premise is far funnier than its presentation. Will Ferrell plays Jackie Moon, a faded pop music crooner who parlayed royalties from his lone hit, "Love Me Sexy," into purchasing a flailing 1970s basketball team. There is lots of red meat here for the Ferrell fan base, but the star wisely shares the limelight with his supporting cast, including Andre Benjamin and Woody Harrelson. Beyond the setup, the jokes are as musty as a gym locker. Rated R. —NM

SHUTTER—When bad photographs happen to attractive young people. Rated PG-13.

STARTING OUT IN THE EVENING—In Andrew Wagner's beautifully nuanced chamber drama, an elderly New York novelist (Frank Langella), a survivor of the tribe of "Bellow and Schwartz," cautiously opens his life to the inquiring mind of an attractive graduate student (Lauren Ambrose). The point of their delicate pas de deux is not so much a May-December romance as a portrait of a writer forced to consider the ways life's messiness impinges on the Apollonian order of art. Rated PG-13. —GC

STEP UP 2 THE STREETS—A continuation of the plotline of every modern-day dance film (Center Stage, Save the Last Dance, Dirty Dancing Havana Nights), but in spite of its verbal shortcomings, this film gets fresh points for its slick dance moves, sick beats and its incorporation of a trampoline into a dance battle. Rated PG-13. —KJ

TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE—This year's deserving winner of the Best Documentary Oscar starts with the murder-by-torture by U.S. forces in Afghanistan of a young taxi driver, then proceeds to shoot holes in the arguments for torture as an interrogation technique while also tracing its recent implementation all the way up the ladder to the White House. The result of director Alex Gibney's incisive inquiry is devastating enough to prompt the question of whether America's self-defense efforts are destroying values they're meant to defend. Rated R. --GC

TYLER PERRY'S MEET THE BROWNS—Or Tyler Perry's Meet the Benjamins. The money-in-the-bank director's latest concerns a trip home to Georgia for a funeral, and a reunion with the country cousins—among them, Madea (Perry). Rated PG.

U2 3D—While U2 has filmed countless concert videos over the years, its newest combines ever-evolving 3D technology with the IMAX experience to create, if not the best concert film ever, then certainly the most sensory and innovative. The result is a sight to behold, replicating the rattle and hum of being part of a live audience yet, through its bevy of omnipresent 3D cameras, providing a glimpse into how to it feels to be onstage before a stadium full of screaming, chanting fans. Rated G. —NM

VANTAGE POINT—A prestige cast and whiz-bang machinations cannot save this thousandth resurrection of Rashomon, a deconstruction of the apparent assassination of the U.S. president (William Hurt) from eight different perspectives. The problem is that by the fifth or sixth replay, revelation turns to repetition, and the tableau ultimately proves to be a hollow gimmick. Rated PG-13. —NM


Due to the possibility of last-minute scheduling changes, we recommend calling ahead to theaters to confirm final showtimes.
